History & History Related Items

Troy history:

There are several stories as to how the city was named. All versions may be found on the history page below. One story says it was named for the Troy weight system that was used to weigh silver and gold.

Due to the untamed area, no one really came here until gold was discovered in the mid 1860s. But until the railroad arrived in the 1890s, the town did not blossom. In 1910, forest fires raged in the area, almost burning the town, but the winds changed and they were saved!

Here is a history page for Troy.
The founding of Troy: 1892
